Ancient 7 with 8 immortals unranked in General Discussion

    I'm honestly confused why I'm with 8 immortals despite the highest rank in this account only being Divine 2. Matchmaking what the actual fuck. It was 5 immortals vs 3 immortals(+me and a smurf) with the highest being goddamn top >80! It sure as heck ended well with 0-13-13 = = . Has this happened to anyone? being matched up with people waaaay higher than their mmr?

                you have unranked solo, unranked party, ranked solo and ranked party mmrs. there was a blog post from valve years ago showing mmr distribution and that it hadn't changed.

                  So it's a separate mmr different from your actual visible ranked mmr? I am aware of hidden mmr but I didn't expect the variance to be that big. I calibrated Ancient 7 in pt mmr if that means anything(Lazy to solo).

                        Unranked matchmaking is a joke. It is impossible to consistently get good balanced games, if any at all.
                        You might as well play ranked on another account.

                        Turbo is the only mode worth playing because pro stacks rarely queue turbo and if you get a bunch of ancients the gamemode makes it significantly easier to solo carry without putting as much effort.

                          I don't get the issue. I'm assuming since you're high ancient you want to climb, but don't want to play against better people? No one takes unranked seriously anyway, isn't that the point?

                            It's not really "I don't want to play with better people", more so "Why am I matched with people whose skill level is way higher than mine" which has already been answered. Thanks!
